[UPDATE: eBay Plus Weekend has ended for 2021, but if you're looking for more deals, we're rounding up the best EOFY sales through the month of June.]
The end of the financial year is within reach and, among other things, that means it's almost EOFY sales time. One of the biggest shopping events of the year, where retailers look to offload stock to make way for new models, EOFY Sales promise buyers huge savings.
However, eBay is taking a slightly different tack – instead of an early EOFY sale, there's an eBay Plus Weekend event that, began on a Thursday (May 27) and ends at midnight tonight (Wednesday, June 2), with several different checkout codes applicable to different offers.
Today is the final day of the event, and eBay has already released massive discounts from top brands like Apple, Dyson, Samsung and Nespresso, to name a few, with up to 80% off on select items. There's a caveat though – you will need to be an eBay Plus member to take advantage of this sale.
Not an eBay Plus member? No worries. You can sign up now and you'll get yourself a free 30-day trial of eBay Plus.

If you were a fan if Pokémon Snap on Nintendo 64, you'll love this.
